We recently experienced a hard media failure. It turns out our admin guys have been doing backups by backing up the pgsql data directory, but not prepping the db first.
After a restore, when I try to start the database I get "LOG: logger shutting down" and nothing else. This is Postgres 8.1.3. I've been on the IRC channel for a while and they referred me here. I know that the DB wasn't backed up correctly, but is there anything I can do to recover? Thanks, David -- David Dollar <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>
